'You don't have to know it all or even do it all but your HEART absolutely has to be in it.' I recently came across this quote online which was shared by the amazing 'Myleik' & it deeply resonated with me (just like most of the content that she shares does). Fear shows up everyday in our lives & even the slightest sight of it makes us stop suddenly in our tracks. It might be the fear of failure, of losing it all, of taking that first leap of faith, of not having everything figured out,...
I was recently invited to a party by a friend (actually a lady that I work for who has since become a friend). I really wanted to wear something handmade & even had an idea in my head of a dress with some African print & fringes to make it fun. It was a house party & there would be some 'Swing & Jazz' music, so I thought that 'Fringe' would make a perfect addition to my outfit because of it's movement & flirt-ability (does that word even make sense)! There's this dress that...
This is me heading out to my Work's Christmas Party. Only that there's no 'Work Christmas Party' because I work alone & that is not my real hair:-). But if there was ever such a party, this is how I would show up because this outfit sums up my personality (mixing business with pleasure), always ready for business but also full of fun & energy.
In our everyday lives we encounter constant self-doubt before we embark on & also during any journey or experience. And such journeys include entrepreneurship where you are forced to second-guess every single decision that you make. Somehow there is always a small voice that creates fear & inaction in you by telling you that you cannot 'do it' or that you are doomed to fail.
This blog title doesn't really make sense at first does it...But let me try & explain it, October is here, am in an 'all black everything' outfit & currently at a happy place in my life. Just got back from a long weekend trip that was amazing, I feel fully recharged and ready to take on the last quarter of the year & all that it has to bring.
I can count the number of 'pink' clothing pieces that I own & they are probably less than 5. That's quite surprisingly few for someone who loves bright colors like I do. This dress was a summer thrift find that was slightly too fitted around my bust that I 'adjusted' with a little ingenuity. I usually pair it with a white t-shirt underneath for a casual daytime look but on this evening, I decided to rock it on it's own for 'Date night'.
The sun is shining, it's getting warmer, am getting darker by the day & have no interest at all in wearing tight-fitted jeans. Mom jeans, boyfriend jeans & straight leg jeans are my thing at the moment, combined with summery tops & accessories & I am ready for this 'early summer'.
Now that Spring has decided to play 'Hide & Seek' with this year, I guess that it's wise for us to also try & sneak in some color into our outfits. Of course we still have to keep ourselves warm but also try to brighten up the dark days that are still upon us.
February which in my view is the month of love is here with us & we have a reason to wear lots of red. This is one of my favorite red sweaters (only one actually) & it has been in my closet for almost 5 years. It is a trusty piece in my wardrobe that I can always rely on to brighten up any dull outfit.
Sometimes we read too much into words or statements made by people without giving them a chance to explain themselves. This might end up damaging relationships that have taken years to build & really hurt the people that we love. This cute sweater is the perfect reminder that things aren't always what they look like (just imagine me as a Gangster Rapper)!
